Lord heal the broken hearts...

(Thanks to Mike for the cartoon)

When we make ourselves vulnerable, we do open ourselves to pain, sometimes excruciating pain. The more people we love, the more we are liable to be hurt, and not only by the people we love, but for the people we love. Madeleine L'Engle

When I was a child
my heart was new
clay in the hands of the potter
as I grew, my heart became firm
the clay grew harder
easily broken, easily hurt
many have held my heart of clay
many have shattered it
unaware of just how fragile it was
sometimes it is hard to trust
knowing that when I do,
my heart may break again
God, mold my heart of stone
teach me how to trust
I know now that only you can. Robin Gabriel

Hebrews 4:14-16
Now that we know what we have—Jesus, this great High Priest with ready access to God—let's not let it slip through our fingers. We don't have a priest who is out of touch with our reality. He's been through weakness and testing, experienced it all—all but the sin. So let's walk right up to him and get what he is so ready to give. Take the mercy, accept the help.
